    I have the same problem. One of the decks (SL1210 MKII) it spins really fast. The pitch and speed controls make no difference. I used to be able to stop it by switching the deck off and on again and after a while it worked but not any more, it just speeds up and doesn't slow down unless I press the Stop button.

You both have issues with your drive circuits. There is no easy fix for this. You will have to take it to a repair center to have them serviced.

There are 4 main Integrated Circuits that control the speed/drive and any one or all may have gone bad. We are seeing this alot with these units now.

Wish I could be of more help.

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?


It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

Technics SL B210 - New belt, but still "plays up" on 45rpm


Hi,
Do on thing Oppen the Turntable and replace the 5 electrolytic capacitor ( 330mfd 16V,3.3Mfd 25V, two 2.2mfd 25V and 47mfd25v )in the circuit board. Also try to replace the 2 Vriable resistor ( 2K and 5K) in the circuit board of which one is for setting the speed of 33.33 and another for 45 rpm. If you need the service manual then just get in to the following link. You have to wait for some time until you will get a notification that Get the manual.

Technics deck has power but stopped rotating


If you're lucky, this can just be a dirty/corroded speed control. Try removing the platter and you should see 2 holes lower center of the indented section. In those holes should be the coarse speed controls. These really set the range of the fine speed controls we play with on the outside. Use a good commercial contact cleaner and spray these babys. Gently move them a bit counter clockwise and clockwise, spray again, then return to about where they started.
If that doesn't help, you either have a motor issue or the controller board has a problem - no easy fix there.

Hi there. although my mk2 plays normally,sudenly i cannot hear it. i`ve checked wires and cartridge, what else it could be?


You need to check that the signal is getting to the amp. This can be done by removing the wires off the cartridge for the left and right channels. With the amp on touch the ends of the wires. If you hear a buzz the signal is getting to the amp and the cartridge is dead, but if you hear nothing and if the wiring is as you say good. Then the pre-amp in your amp for the cartridge has failed. This pre-amp will only affect the record deck and no other functions. If it has gone you can trace the wires from the sockets to it. Sometimes it will be on a seperate PC board. It's often a single IC that has failed. If you can replace it yourself be careful with the new one as these are often static sensitive chips.
PS the phono scokets on the amp sometimes buzz if you pull the plugs in & out!

this should help determine which one goes where but they may be the same , so it wouldn't matter if they have the same voltaage and amp. rating

Techics sl-1210s m3 turntable spins back on itself


You have a fault on the quartz-lock speed control electronics. It may be a simple fix, it may be not.

It will require specialist investigation. A Technics dealer should be able to advise you, and arrange shipping back to Technics for repair if you decide that is the best thing to do.
